Munich Film Up! is a 9-month mentoring & residential program welcoming fresh film school graduates with first feature film projects. Presented by HFF München, Munich Film Up! is run in cooperation with the Pop Up Film Residency as exclusive content partner, and in partnership with Film School Fest Munich and Filmfest München.

Each year 6 participants from all over the world take part in the Lab that notably consists in two workshops held in Munich: first in parallel to the Film School Fest Munich in November, and then during the Filmfest München in June, when they present their projects to film industry executives. In between, each aspiring filmmaker benefits from a tailor-made Pop Up Film Residency in one of the residences of our network.
